Mega Match-a-thon pet adoption event is set

Statement issued Tuesday:

Homeless dogs and cats are clipping their nails and combing their coats for the upcoming Mega Match-a-thon Pet Adoption Event coming to Fort Wayne on March 30 & 31. If you’re looking to add a new pet to your family then get ready for an incredible 2-day pet adoption event that will include special reduced adoption fees on all adoptable dogs, only $45, and cats only $10.

The event will be held at two locations. Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control, 3020 Hillegas Road will be open from 12-8 p.m. both days. Hope for Animals, 1333 Maycrest Drive will host multiple animal rescue organizations from 12-8 p.m. on Saturday.

Those hoping to find a new best friend should come prepared for a same day adoption. Bring a collar and leash for a dog adoption and a cat carrier for a cat adoption. To expedite the process, bring vaccination records for all pets in your home and bring along all family members for a meet and greet.

Mega Match-a-thon is made possible with a grant from the ASPCA® (The National American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) headquartered in New York as an amazing effort to help save more lives. The goal of the Fort Wayne event is to match 100 dogs and cats with loving, responsible homes.
